Squashed markers in Makie/Makielayout

How do you maintain the aspect ratio (shape) of markers in sub-plots using Makie/MakieLayout? e.g.

using MakieLayout
using Makie

scene = Scene(resolution = (1200, 900), camera=campixel!)

layout = GridLayout(
    scene, 2, 2,
    colsizes = [Relative(0.75), Relative(0.25)],
    rowsizes = [Relative(0.5), Relative(0.5)],
    alignmode = Outside(30, 30, 30, 30))

layout[1,1] = ax = LAxis(scene)

lines!(ax, [0.0, 1.0], [0.0, 1.0], scale_plot = true)

scatter!(ax, rand(4), rand(4), markersize = .1)


The markers are squashed … scale_plot has no effect on this.

I want to draw a scatterplot in which the x-axis goes from 0 to 1000 and the y-axis goes from 0 to 1. In a Makie scene it works as expected - the markers are circular - but in a MakieLayout LAxis() they are thin vertical lines.

There was a bug in AbstractPlotting.jl that caused the issue. Made a report few days ago. Try to update your packages. Seems OK in my test.

I upgraded all packages & tried it again … the markers are still squashed.

Try to add this line.

using AbstractPlotting: px

and change this line

scatter!(ax, rand(4), rand(4), markersize=10px)

You might also need to get latest branch, i.e. ] add AbstractPlotting#use-vertical-dims-from-font and ] add CairoMakie v0.2.0 #jk/scale_text .

It works! Thank you so much.

We’ve made some new releases, so you should have all the same functionality on the latest tagged versions (AbstractPlotting@0.10.7, CairoMakie@0.2.3).

The text from text!(scene, ...) is squashed, if axis is set sufficiently large, i.e. more than 1.0, e.g. ylims!(scene, 0.0, 50.0). Already on latest version of AbstractPlotting v0.10.11 and CairoMakie v0.2.6.

I have a squashed text issue also - did you resolve this Humphrey?
